Sharks surround Birmingham's canal

Lmc Sealife Creature New Blacktip Cropped

Town Hall Symphony Hall and The National SEA LIFE Centre Birmingham have teamed up to offer an underwater experience like no other.

Next year, Steven Spielberg’s original summer movie blockbuster Jaws will be screened at Symphony Hall next year, accompanied by a live performance of the iconic score which won John Williams his first Best Original Score Academy Award®.

Upon its release, Jaws became the most successful movie of all time, and Spielberg has often credited Williams’ iconic score with much of the film’s success. Now audiences will have the chance to experience the power of a live symphony orchestra performing the entire score in sync with one of the greatest motion pictures of all time – the ultimate film-with-live-orchestra experience!

Sea Life Centre are thrilled to be working with Town Hall Symphony Hall for their forthcoming presentation of Jaws in Concert. Sharks have excellent hearing, and can hear sounds over 200 metres away - chances are they will be able to hear the live performance of the iconic film score whilst audiences are sat in their seats to Symphony Hall. There are over 500 species of shark in our oceans and thanks to this partnership, audiences will have the opportunity to meet some of the different Shark species at Birmingham Sea Life and discover that sharks aren’t so scary.

The National SEA LIFE Centre Birmingham transports visitors to an amazing underwater world, where they get to see incredible sea life from all over the planet, from the coast of Britain and the chilly Antarctic, to the tropical waters of the Caribbean.

The National SEA LIFE Centre Birmingham has an aquarium home to over 2,000 creatures, such as sharks, as well as a rescued Giant Green Sea Turtle, otters, jellyfish, piranha, octopus and rays.  

Town Hall Symphony Hall and The National SEA LIFE Centre Birmingham sit opposite each other over the depths of Birmingham’s waterways. With sharks on either side of the canal, audiences will undoubtedly love the opportunity to cross the water and experience a full-day of sea life before a night of nerve-wracking thrills!
